I have been part of baseball for my entire life. As a player, coach, teacher, scout, and now broadcaster, I have seen some of the finest athletes in the world playing our wonderful games of baseball and softball. And while some of those athletes have been at the highest levels-the major leagues, those at the League of Dreams level continue to astound me with their determination, willingness to learn and have fun and most importantly the joy with which they play the games.
In the days and weeks to come keep an eye on this site for more information about more programs in more places serving more people. And while you are at it consider joining us as a volunteer and as importantly a donor. We serve our players for about $50 a year—that’s a year. Think what you can do with a gift to League of Dreams.
Mike Bordick, Chairman of the Board

One of the best defensive players in club history, he led AL shortstops with a .989 fielding percentage and 797 total chances in 1999 with the Orioles, a year in which he also led the AL in batting average against left-handed pitching (.406). He batted .260 with 1,500 hits in his career, including a .260 average (674-for-2592) in 739 games with the Orioles.
